Women Most Tired on Wednesday after 3 pm: Survey
A new survey has found that women tend to look their oldest on Wednesday evenings when they are at their lowest energy levels and the effects of weekend parties have finally take their toll on the health, reports The Telegraph.
The survey was conducted by tanning company St. Tropez. Women taking part in the survey also said that they are more likely to have sex on Thursday. And, this might be the reason why almost 60 percent said that Friday was the best day of the week.
"It's fascinating that 3.30pm on a Wednesday is the time women look their oldest," Nichola Joss, St. Tropez skin expert told The Telegraph."Combine the highest stress levels of the week on a Wednesday with the natural mid-afternoon slump and it seems that's why women can look older than their years."
Almost half of the study participants also said that they drank heavily during the weekends, which explains why women tended to look their oldest mid-week.
"Processing the toxins in alcohol and sugar can put strain on the body," Joss told The Telegraph." It can take up to 72 hours for the visible effects of alcohol to show, so the effects of drinking on the weekend may not present themselves until Wednesday afternoon."
The effects of weekend partying along with poor sleep on a blue Monday seem to add on to the stress levels on Wednesday. About 37 percent of the survey participants said that they got their worst sleep on a Monday night.
Joss suggested that women get at least 7 to 8 hours sleep every day. Taking care of the face like cleaning and moisturizing it can help keep the face looking fresh.
"Letting these build up clogs the skin making it duller and drier, and superficially older," Joss said, reports The Telegraph.
